others were the top ten bill clinton and joe biden. do you have an explanation. [ laughter ] >> the romney jokes write themselves. thank you, good night. [ laughter ] >> i think look, it's media bias. i remember saturday night live, when chevy chase doing gerald ford i think that made a difference in the nation. humor does that. >> ford was a football player and a skier, downhill skier, most athletic president was portrayed as a bunglar that could hardly walk. >> you can't changes the numbers but i would like to point out that jon stewart and steven col bevtd who demographic skew is a little bit younger but very good about making fun of both candidates. pretty equally. >> the excuse is the writers live in los angeles and new york city. they are part of those communities. they are the two most liberal cities in the united states. >> when clinton it was president it was about monica lewinsky. >> but except mitt romney is not president. it happened four years before romney was running. >> take a random example, joe biden is good source but he doesn't get the attention that for
this evening. the president is sending the first lady there today and joe biden on thursday. i want to put up a quote from my friend rory cooper who said "the des moines register" enl dorised carter, mondale, gore and couldn't endorse another four years of obama. wow. you see folks on the left dismissing the value of this. on the right they'll make a big deal about it. i came upon a fun study from 2008. brown university economists found that when moderate papers endorse they're seen as mort credible. when a partisan paper does it, not so much. when the chicago sun times and "denver post" endorsed kerry and bush, the study found 3% of readers switched voting allegiance. they flipped their allegiances in 2000. i have to say, i think an interesting number that matters is when you compare the endorsement numbers, obama has 34 endorsement from major, significant papers. romney has 27. look at the circulation of those endorsements. obama's total just over 9 million readers. >> 27? >> and mitt romney is at 27 and not 7. his total circulation just under 5 million. so i don't know that this is a scien
chief economist for vice president joe biden, also an msnbc contributor. jared, as we look over these estimates and they're really rough now in the very beginning. >> very rough. >> sandy could cost when it's all said and done, the total $20 billion or more. exceeding the damage certainly from irene last year which was about 12 to $16 billion. meantime moody's an lytics estimate economic losses will total $10 billion a day, lost wages, production, sales for businesses. do you think that estimate is on target? >> yeah, i think that estimate is on target but i believe moody's said they're not going to alter their estimate for gdp in the fourth quarter because some of this will be made up and also some of this stuff that gets destroyed you have to put people to work to rebuild it. that actually adds to gross domestic product. it subtracts from the net but adds to the growth. >> one thing i'm being told in my ear, we have an updated death toll i want to pass along to everyone. we now have 27 -- 29, excuse me, 29 confirmed deaths. again, we started this hour it was 18. so the numbers
going to be coming out of cleveland on sunday night with joe biden. >> well that's going to be very exciting, sunday night. but i tell you it's a lot of work, this place looks great. let's talk about mitt romney and paul ryan. they had that huge rally last night in ohio. in that they the president was leading, chris, this morning by six points according to the nbc poll there. can mitt romney close that gap in ohio? we've got three days to go. >> how would i know? how would i possibly know, alex? >> i'm asking you because of your wide perspective having covered so many elections. >> it's a state republicans need to win the election. they always need it. they don't win without it. i remember even when they -- even when democrats win, you know, it's rarely a republican state. nixon carried it in '60 against kennedy. it's a republican-leaning state. but this time because of romney's failure to support the auto rescue, his opposition to it, and lately those dishonest ads about jeep going over to china are not helping him at all. >> right. so you think the auto bailout has played in signi
's debate between congressman paul ryan and vice president joe biden, that should be a lot of fun. and i would have to say this ann coulter versus whoopi goldberg. i do have to say that was an extremely one-sided in every definition of the term because they would have to bleep out every response just like they did on the view so that would be unfair. what ann is really one word, courageous, truly courageous. [applause] she is willing to use her amazing satirical way to highlight the most important issues of our day. and go describes herself as a polemicist who like sister the pot and does not pretend to be impartial or balanced as our broadcasters do. that is a perfect way to describe it and she is a lawyer. she graduated with honors from cornell university and she is also graduate of the university of michigan loft school and syndicated columnist, author of eight "new york times" bestsellers which once again confirms the ladies of the view are the only ones who have not read her book. they can comment on her book. the latest book, "mugged" racial demagoguery from the seventies to obama
enjoyed that one. tonight's debate between paul ryan and the vice president joe biden should be a lot of fun. and ann versus will be goldberger. i have to say that would be extremely 1-sided in every definition because you wouldn't even hear will be. they would have to be out every response like they did last night on of you. that would be unfair. the entertainment factor aside what welle -- what ann is is truly courageous. willing to use her amazing satirical wit to highlight the most important issues of our day. describes herself as a polemicist who likes to stir the pot and does not pretend to be impartial balance as are broadcasters do. airbag ground has prepared her well. she is a lawyer who graduated with honors from cornell university and graduated university of michigan law school, syndicated columnist, author of eight new york times bestsellers which confirms that they're the only ones who haven't read their books. and demagoguery from -- "mugged: racial demagoguery from the seventies to obama" is in sight land timely. i have to say after reading that i felt so unburdened and
obama. or vice president joe biden. the romney campaign announced mitt romney will host a so-called "storm relief event" in ohio tomorrow with nascar's richard petty. and country music's randy owen. if the serious aftermath of this hurricane runs into this weekend then for all practical purposes the candidates may have already made their closing arguments to the voters. what they have to say now may not be heard over the storm coverage. team obama's last public act took place in ohio while the president was in washington. >> we went to florida last night and he got up this morning and called me and said, i've got to go back right now. the storm is getting out of hand i have to handle it. i said, mr. president, that's the right call. >> i just want you to know, he asked me to express his regrets for not being able to be here but, you know, he's doing the job a president should be doing. >> mitt romney's last come pain event was today in iowa. >> i want to take a moment before we begin just to think about what's happening on the coast, the east coast of our country right now. i
clinton where vice president joe biden stood in for him. >> folks, i know you're expecting the real president, the present president, reverend, i just want you to know, he asked me to express his regrets for not being able to be here but, you know, he's doing the job a president should be doing. [ cheers and applause ] and first and foremost on behalf of the president, i want to thank all the first responders throughout this country. you know, there are folks from all over america heading to my part of the world to the east coast to help now. they're coming from all over. >> well, mitt romney and paul ryan have canceled all of their campaign events tomorrow and at their last event in ohio romney asked people to help if they can. >> i want to mention that our hearts and prayers are with all the people in the storm's path. sandy is another devastating hurricane by all accounts and a lot of people are going to be facing some real tough times as a result of sandy's fury and so if you have the capacity to make a donation to american red cross, you can go online and do that. if there are
manufacturing sector. but today you might have heard that joe biden, again, was at it again. today he was talking about the government bailout which he keeps touting is an unsuccessful story. ask the chrysler engine people if they think that this was a success story. the facts, they speak for themselves. >> i mean, what is he talking about, dana? he voted for it and it was a success. >> well, i'm a little confused because now he's going to have an argument with his boss, mitt romney, who has said that in fact the whole thing was a success because president obama followed his advice, which wasn't true in the first place. but, still, they've got to get their falsehoods all lined up here if people are going to start asking questions. i think what happened here in ohio is they were looking at this and said, look, we're down five points and a whole bunch of these polls. we are losing the state. let's roll the dice. i think they realized there could be this kind of backlash that they are getting not just from the media but from the corporations themselves. the question is, how many of the p
" for now. join me sunday night at 5:00 and 7:00 for a special "hardball" with vice president joe biden. "politicsnation" starts right now with al sharpton. >>> thanks, chris, and thanks to you for tuning in. four days until election day. the real clear politics shows president obama with 47.4% in national polls, mitt romney has 47.3% the new york times 538 blog says that if the election were held today, the president would win 303 electoral votes and romney would win 235. 270 are needed to win the white house. the times blog gives the president an 81% chance of winning the election. romney has a 19% chance. and as of tonight, 25 million people have already voted but long lines are creating a serious situation in some parts of florida. yes, florida all over again. some people are waiting three hours or more to vote and we will be asking why governor rick scott in florida is refusing to extend hours as his predecessors have done. but we start with tonight's lead. the closer. just four days to go and president obama is sprinting to the finish line with a passionate pitch to ohio voters an
, "vice president joe biden was warned not to expect any bipartisan cooperation on major votes. biden said, i spoke to seven different republican senators who said, joe, i'm not going to be able to help you on anything." his informants said senate minority leader mitch mcconnell had demanded unified resistance. the way it was characterized to me was for the next two years we can't let you succeed in anything. that's our ticket to coming back. what if we took that attitude right there to the storm damage and cleanup? now mitt romney said he's the guy who can reach across the aisle? not according to the most influential in washington, grover norquist. according to norquist, mitt romney is not supposed to do anything except what the republicans tell him to. >> we don't need a president to tell us what direction to go. we know what direction we want to go. we want the paul ryan budget which cuts spending $6 trillion. the republicans in the house passed 24-plus bills that create jobs and opportunity and strip out regulations. we just need a president to sign this stuff. we don't need someone to
. that has been cancelled. joe biden was supposed to be there, but is not going to be able to go to new hampshire today. people are trying to move around their appearances, the president basically had a couple of appearances and is then coming back. the white house is basically monitoring conditions. host: we are talking about two different changes to the schedule. one is the practicality of not going to a certain swing state, but the other has to deal with how candidates are perceived. talk to us about that angle. host: mike holly had an interesting story today. no one wants to be seen as politicizing a storm, but on the other hand they have a job to do next week. no one has talked about suspending their campaign. after the john mccain experience four years ago, no one would actually use that phrase. there are unpredictable ways in which this could affect people. no one wants to be seen as trying to take political of vantage of this. but the effect could include things like not being able to make appearances in swing states, early voting, or power outages lasted long enough, voting cou
agenda is. >> vice president joe biden issued a warning on that front. listen to what he had to say about romney and who he is beholden to. >> ask him a question, when have you ever seen governor romney take on the establishment of his party? what do you think the prospects are that governor romney would attempt to do anything he now says he supports? q. what do you think the chances of him doing that with the republican controlled congress to keep the congress? what do you think the chances are he's going to tell the tea party guys you're dead wrong. that's what he ae's saying now. >> romney has admitted there may be good democrats in the world and they may care about america but at the end of the day is that proof that he will work with democrats and take a moderate position given his track record thus far in listening to the tea party and refusing to plant a flag in the grounts on anything running counter to the republican agenda. >> i am a registered democrat because i thought they hated america. that's news to me. but second of all -- >> i want to point out liz is not speaking for th
, wisconsin. joe biden and bill clinton are also on the stump for president obama. let's bring in our panel, former rnc chairman michael steele, former democratic senator blanche lincoln, and washington bureau chief susan page. susan, let me start with you. disaster politics. it's a fact of life. it's what can re-elect or unelect governors, but now it's potentially impacting the presidential race. any idea how this is going to impact? >> if you want to look at an opportunity for president, look at "morning joe," governor christie of new jersey, saying the president and fema are doing an outstanding job. i mean, that's the upside, potential political upside for a president. obama is not out there on the campaign trail like any candidate. he's in the situation room, being briefed overnight. >> right. this is an opportunity for him to be the president, to be the commander in chief, to make that case. if there's a problem with fema's response, if there's a glitch that develops, but i think a big potential here for president obama in this very, very close race. >> senator lincoln, it's interesti
their ohio campaigning for tomorrow as well. joe biden also canceled campaigning. how do they handle this and then you've got the image of mitt romney doing what they say is not a campaign event, in the same place they were going to hold a campaign event, they say they're making collections for hurricane storm relief. chris cizilla, first to you, we checked with the red cross, the red cross said they're always grateful for donations, but this is not what they need or want. they always tell people please donate money. we have our own packagers and wholesalers and distribution system and to now get niece canned goods from the romney event in ohio and have to package it, used clothes they have to clean, they can't go directly to victims what they need is donations of blood and donations of money. it does seem like a thinly veiled -- why ohio? why choose ohio? >> right. because the storm is kind of -- >> not in ohio. >> you ask how do you -- how does president obama and mitt romney handle this politically? the answer i think can be summed up in one word delicately. it's a very fine and t
, jeb bush. and joe biden will be in florida as well. coverage today around 3:00 p.m. on c-span, campaign rally in that state. and the spread the jobs report comes out, could that be a game tinder? could that be an october surprise? guest: i do not think so. over the last several months, good news or bad news, these jobs reports are not moving numbers. a big bet is because the average american doesn't really pay attention to jobs numbers. the vaguely no unemployment is high and their own personal economic situation is not good. that is their view of the economy. their view of the economy is not clear to be changed with what bls says. david job whether their neighbors have a job. -- they have a job whether their neighbors have a job. is this jobless report comes out and it is really bad or really great news, first of all, i do not think a lot of people will pay attention become a significant amount of people have already voted. millions of people in florida, ohio, every place where democrats are trying to drive early voting and absentee voting. they have already cast their b
to be out on the campaign trail doing so in iowa. congressman paul ryan in wisconsin. vice president joe biden and governor mitt romney, they're going to be taking to the south in florida. now, romney is in tampa where he's going to kick off a campaign event this hour. we'll keep our eyes posted on that for you. there we see senator marco rubio at that point. i want to bring in msnbc contributor joanne reid and chip saltzman. let's get to it. the optics, joanne, talking about what we're going to see today with chris christie and the president out on the -- surveying watch together. it's really interesting to think of an odd couple, these guys together. christie seeming to be the president's new best friend. let's listen to the comments that christie has made over the last week. >> the president has been outstanding in this. the president has been all over this and he deserves great credit. he's been incredibly supportive and helpful to our state and not once did he bring up the election. >> all right, so let's talk about this. chris christie, a new bff to the president. big difference, b
will always ensure that disaster funding is there for those in need, period." period? vice president joe biden was campaigning also in the sunshine state today. president obama returns to the campaign trail tomorrow. he plans to barnstorm seven battleground states over the next several days. but today, we did not see politics in action. what we saw was government in action. people with authority to make decisions. chris christie is not the first person, i think, that you would think of when you come to the, you know, arena of bipartisan cooperation. he is a mitt romney supporter and a fierce opponent of many democratic issues. for whatever reason, we saw a different chris christie with president obama today. this is what cooperation looks like. when the american people need government to work, these two elected officials became leaders, and are in lockstep with each other. about time, isn't it? things are getting done. so many politicians run for office saying that they are going to reach across the aisle when they get to washington, and they're going to get things done when they get elected.
the campaign is afoot for the weekend. for the week the task of campaigning has been left to paul ryan and joe biden. >> and president clinton. >> right. >> but to surrogates, the notion the two guys running for the highest office in the land are not actively campaigning in the homestretch. jeb bush, i don't know if he was called by the romney campaign and asked to say something harsh about the president, but he certainly did not mince words yesterday in coral gables. let's take a listen to what he had to say. >> do you honestly think that this president is capable of bringing people together? his entire strategy is to blame others, starting with my brother, of course. basically, he blames every possible thing rather than having the humility to be able to reach out and to find common ground i thought that was, a, surprising from jeb bush, someone who is a republican, former republican governor, and certainly a surrogate for the romney campaign, but harsh words, especially given what the president was doing yesterday. >> yeah, i think that's true. and governor bush has not been the most hot eye
. meanwhile vice president joe biden makes two stops in wisconsin. congressman paul ryan begins his day in colorado before flying back to the midwest for a rally in cedar falls, iowa. then he joins romney in westchester in ohio tonight. then there's former president bill clinton for the fifth player in all of this if you will and look at his schedule today in florida. he goes to lake worth, then ft. myers, then st. petersburg, then tallahassee. he's got five events in total today in florida. and you know the way he talks. talk about a hoarse voice by the end of the day it will be interesting to see where his voice is by 8:00 tonight. in the frenetic final days both candidates are giving positive pitches and warnings as to what will happen if the other guy is voted in. and bolder last night the president argued for another four years. >> after four years as president, you know me by now. you know me. you may not agree with every decision that i've made. you may be frustrated at the pace change. i always remind people that when we did the auto bail out only 10% of the country approved of
. vice president joe biden has a style for this and we fill you in because it's time for the poly side bar. >> number ten, good things. >> i'm not saying each early voter gets a free cheeseburger but i'm not saying they don't either. >> see. not saying they do, not saying they don't. number six. >> if you vote early you don't have to pay taxes. i'm sorry, i'm being told that's not accurate. >> that's not accurate. >> number five. >> single and looking to mingle? find that special someone on thele early voting line. >> that's right. >> number four. >> of course there's the open bar. >> that's right. the open bar. >> number three. >> not exercising your right to vote is malarkey. it's literally malarkey. >> okay. whatever you say. >> number two. >> early voters receive a $5 million donation from donald trump. >> wow! wow! now we're talking. and the number one good thing about voting early, ladies and gentlemen. >> honestly, don't you want this election over with already? >> yes, we do. >> four more days to gop. so montgomery burns endorses mitt romney for president. simpson style. >> who
these things, mi romney? >> joe biden is using his teeth to illuminate hoboken. >> find that special someone in the early voting line. >> our destiny is in the hands of the american people. >> i will fight for you and your family every single day as hard as i know how. >> let's get to our panel, dana 34i8 bank is political columnist for "the washington post" and toure is my colleague and the co-host of "the cycle." desperate mitt, desperate measures. in your column this week you write, when the stakes are high, as they are for mr. romney, it must win ohio, the truth is often the first casualty. does that explain mr. romney's completely dishonest and disturbing ad about chrysler moving jobs from ohio to china? >> well, martin, this was a pattern even before and something i was pointing out -- >> so you're suggesting he's a pathological liar. >> well, there is some pathology to it. it doesn't seem like it just came out of left field here. but when he had his back to the wall with rick perry, newt gingrich, rick santorum, you saw this sort of pattern. the fact checker at the waup has been -- "w
to wisconsin as well today. vice president joe biden has two events in colorado, one outside denver, the other in pueblo. the candidates are also taking the fight to the printed page today with duelling op-eds in the "wall street journal." meanwhile back in d.c. this morning president obama at fema headquarters where he met with officials and talked about disaster relief in the wake of hurricane sandy. >> our hearts continue to go out to those families who have been affected and have lost loved ones. that's obviously heartbreaking. but i'm confident that we can continue to make progress as long as state, local and federal officials -- >> so, one critical thing. one critical thing to watch in this very busy final homestretch here, the closing arguments that the candidates are making, the single big picture message is that they are hoping voters take to heart come tuesday. here to talk about that and a whole lot more bill schneider resident scholar at the washington think tank and our political reporter from "the washington post." good afternoon to both of you. bill, let's start with you. msnbc'

parenthood. he should talk to big bird. he is gone. >> that was vice president joe biden earlier today taking aim at governor romney's vow to eliminate funding for planned parenthood. this year single ladies could play the deciding role, with 55 million of them eligible to vote. according to a recent pugh poll, president obama is whomping, i believe that's a technical term, mitt romney by 25 points among that group. in many respects, the election has become a choice between the past versus the future, a choice between a bygone era and a brave new world. joy reed explores this dynamic, writing it takes for granted that billy might have two moms or two dads, or that the ceo might be a she. it could care less if guys serve in the military. it can't imagine abortion or conservatives being illegal. i thinks madmen is a good tv show, but so is the walking dead. cecil richards is the president of planned parenthood. and today she is joining us behalf of the obama campaign. part of my favorite thing is how much i get to see you. thanks for joining the program, as always. >> thanks for having me back.
